March 11, 2007 -- Jason Ruebens, founder of Pioneer Photo Albums, passed away of natural causes at the age of 99. Born in New York, he started Ruko Camera Cases in the early 1940's and then moved on to California in 1960, eventually creating the nucleus of what is today Pioneer Photo Albums. He is survived by his daughter D.D., son-in-law Shell, three grandchildren and a great grandson.
Pioneer Photo Albums continues on strongly with his work ethic, and is still run as a privately-owned company by the family members who will greatly miss his presence.
Donations in his honor may be given to the American Heart Association. For more information contact Shell Plutsky, president, Pioneer Photo Albums at (818) 882-2161 x221 or Fax at (818) 882-6239.
